Fijian Orange Spot Filefish

Hi, has anyone kept a Fijian Orange Spot Filefish?
They are such beautiful fish, I would love to get one. But I see online that they can be extremely difficult feeding.

I am no expert on this fish, but I want to say that it is hard to keep because it only eats live coral. I might be confusing my fish, but I do recall this is one that should stay where it is harvested from.

They feed on the polyps of A. Millepora in the wild. However Iíve heard of people training them to eat masstick well. Definitely buy from a reputable source

Masstick is an amazing food, but doesn't make up for the difficulty sadly.
